Cindy & Christo: 9 March 2013


When I first met Cindy, I found myself constantly staring at her (blush). She was just such a beautiful and graceful girl and her love for her friends, family and ‘her Christo’ simply radiated from her and made her shine. When we started planning their wedding at Zorgvliet Wine Estate in Stellenbosch, we could never even have hoped for the perfect day it turned out to be. The weather was warm, but not hot, the sky was the clearest of blues and the mountains were awash in shades of purples and greys, perfectly matching the colours of their wedding!

With Christo being in the acting industry, they decided to pull the theme through by giving each of the tables at the reception the name of one of their favourite movies. The table names were displayed as ‘clapper boards’ and the guests’ seats were allocated by means of a ‘movie ticket’.

The star-studded guest list were all decked out in their sunday best and with ‘Neville’ (Zane Meas) at the helm as the master of ceremonies, ‘Aunty Charmaine’ (Vinette Ibrahim) giving a toast and Christo’s two on-screen brothers (‘Vince’ and ‘Xander’) giving him advice on how to treat his new wife, even the 7e Laan family shared in their most special day.

The wedding cake was an amazing, 4-tier creation in white, decorated with the most delicate purple roses. It took centre stage on the dancefloor till the couple felt that it was time to show us their moves. And what moves! The guests also surprised us with a line dance to a popular Whitney Houston song and after that, there was not a moment of rest for the DJ.

The sun went down and the stars came out and shone over one happy couple and many happy friends and family members who shared in the best day of their lives. We wish these two All Stars a romance and ‘happily ever after’ that will make even the best of their favourite movies look weak and washed out.
